San Diego Bike Commuter maintains a business discount program for cyclists. There are no cards to carry around or secret handshakes; simply put- if you go to a participating small local business on a bicycle, you get a discount. There are nice, wooden signs with our logo that go in business windows that indicate they are part of this program. These signs are easy to see from the street.
Each business will decide on how much of a discount they will offer, and will be updated on the website. Ride your bike more and please support these small local businesses. Don’t forget to ask for the discount.
